During the Conference breaks, we are looking at displaying information about projects and activities that are happening in the University. If you fancy showcasing some work that you have done or want to spread the word about something, please contact the Conference Team for more details.

Here’s what we have confirmed so far:

Assessment Journey Programme ajp IMAGE

Are you ready for September?

September 2016 will see the introduction of a new University Policy for Summative Assessment and consequently, changes to practice for the design and delivery of online assessment.

Do you have a burning question about online submission and feedback? The Assessment Journey Programme (AJP) Team will be on hand on 23 and 24 June offering a drop-in surgery to answer your queries and provide support. During the two days, there will be opportunities to learn about online tools and techniques used to create feedback (such as Crocodoc, Blackboard Rubrics, screencasting), and support will be available for those wishing to get a head start in preparing Blackboard sites in readiness for September.

For more information on the Assessment Journey Programme, please visit the AJP blog or email ! Assessment Journey Programme.

We look forward to seeing you!
